How Does Bankruptcy Affect Filing Taxes?

The bankruptcy code has many confusing rules about tax debts and what can and cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. The most important thing to remember is that even if you have filed bankruptcy, you still have to file and pay your taxes on time.

At the metro Atlanta law firm of Gingold & Gingold LLC, you can meet with two experienced lawyers. Attorney Ira D. Gingold has been practicing bankruptcy law since 1971 and served as Court-appointed Bankruptcy Trustee from 1971 to 2013. His partner, attorney Jamie L. Gingold, is a skilled bankruptcy attorney practicing since 2001 who also has experience in issues dealing with business and real estate law. They will help you figure out your options.

We have offices in Atlanta, Cumming, Dallas and Douglasville to better serve you. Call (404) 685-8800 to schedule a free consultation and discuss your options.

What Will I Owe Taxes On?

A frequent question that people have is whether they will owe taxes on debt that has been discharged such as credit card debt or medical bills. The answer to that is no. Once that debt has been forgiven, it is gone because the taxpayer is insolvent or unable to pay his or her debts.

Remember, filing bankruptcy can help you regain financial stability; it cannot hurt you. You will be able to get a better handle on your bills you must continue to pay and stop your creditors from being able to harass you for the bills you cannot afford to pay.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Julie T.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
